Announcing the BCIR program (Broadlook Certified Internet Researcher)

Internet Research is the common thread across all usage of Broadlook products. It is NOT recruiting, sourcing, sales or marketing. Recruiting, sourcing, sales and marketing are the functions which depend upon Internet Research.

Many of Broadlook's recruiting clients may be surprised to know that an equal number of sales and marketing professionals use Broadlook solutions. Conversely, sales and marketing users may be surprised to learn… Continue

Jobs are Now Partnerships. A lesson from the Great Depression

Tony Hsieh, CEO

As I sat watching live, streaming video from the Word of Mouth Marketing Association Summit and Research Symposium in Vegas last week from the comfort of my cushy office chair in Southlake, TX, it occurred to me that the corporate philosophy being shared by the enigmatic…

Is Changing Jobs That Risky?

The Wall Street Journal ran an article last week citing an Accenture study that found 46% of middle managers in the US felt changing jobs in the current economy was 'risky'. That's consistent with what we are seeing in the market and it makes me worry--not for our business but for those folks who have lulled themselves into a false sense of security.

Take Sun Micro for example. Big beautiful buildings, 30 some thousand employees. Feels pretty secure. Except that their market cap is… Continue

From an Applicant's Point of View

Looking for a new job has brought me to the deepest and darkest trenches I never even knew existed on the internet. I've been to places I wouldn't even dare bring you. I think I've actually seen the "black hole" where resumes tend to go once you spend an hour entering details about your life on an online job application. It was either that or my head hitting the desk from the exhaustion of typing - over and over - my job history, skills and abilities, salary requirements and what shoe size I… Continue

How do you feel about Personal Branding?

I stumbled upon a debate about personal branding started by Geoff Livingston of The Buzz Bin a few days ago with his blog post: I Don’t Care About Your Personal Brand. While I disagree with the overall message, he does bring up some interesting points.

(Mitch Joel at Twist Image responded with a post: Why You Need To Care More About Your Personal Brand. I encourage you to read both posts, the comments, and come to your own conclusion).

To touch upon a few of the key… Continue

VOTE for Claudette R. Graham - Senior Corporate Recruiter (Talent Acquisition)

I am known for my social networking skills both in person and online. I am able to not only influence candidates interested in the job, manager and company, but by identifying and communicating positive aspects, while pointing out challenges when appropriate. I am able to sell candidates to the hiring manager who I have found through social media-- FaceBook, email, LinkedIn, phone calls or referrals; I use my network as a marketing channel and target them for specific…

3 steps to creating a world class hiring practice

Many companies report that their biggest challenge is finding talented employees. This really is the factor that separates mediocre companies from “Industry Leaders”.

Well, how do we hire the best and not just settle for whose available? Or who meets our job requirements?

Here are some basic tips that can elevate your hiring practice.

Define what you’re looking for. Most companies know what they need but fail to do the work upfront and convey this to their… Continue

Off topic: What love is to 4-8 year olds

I don't care if this is comes up in as being written by a 32 year old male who's living with his Mom - who still cooks and cleans for him; it's adorable...

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore

So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”

Rebecca (8)

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.

You just know that… Continue

Why Are There So Few Female Computer Scientists?

"When one looks at computer science in particular, however, the proportion of women has been falling. In 2001-2, only 28 percent of all undergraduate degrees in computer science went to women. By 2004-5, the number had declined to only 22 percent. Data collected by the Computing Research Association showed even fewer women at research universities like M.I.T.: women accounted for only 12 percent of undergraduate degrees in computer science and engineering in the United States and… Continue

Got Milk? or Reminders? or Dialogue?

Remember The Milk - iPhone App Friday I was checking the analytics reports - web traffic, sources, trends, etc. - the usual geeky stuff. The idea behind taking a look at where people are arriving to from, figuring out exactly what they're clicking on, is fun for me. Think of it as a puzzle - especially since many of… Continue

I'm in love with my gadgets

But I think I may need therapy...

What I'm noticing about people and the dumbing-down thing is that we respond to the affordances of technology. If you send me a letter, my expectation is that I should answer within two to three weeks. If you send me a fax, I have the expectation that within two days I should be getting back to you. If you… Continue

When the going gets tough, recruiting cries "SHORTAGE!!!!!"

If you can't find talent for your IT/technical positions in a world that is reeling with layoffs, you have a problem. Or your hiring manager has a litany of issues. Or the people who could work for you have an inflated sense of salary.

Some think there really is a shortage and that offshoring is overblown. Yet those who are in the field believe...

I believe… Continue

Why You Need an Objective On Your Resume

I found a great video on YouTube by Susan Ireland, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Resume. In this video, Susan discusses why you need an objective on the top of your resume. I agree that it’s important for you to have a good one (see my post 7 Tips For a Great Resume). There are several reasons:

1. It lets the reader know what you want, instead of implying that you need help finding a spot. It’s a weak approach that won’t serve you well anywhere in the process,… Continue
